The South Wolverhamtpon & Bilston Academy

During the Summer Term in RE, year 8 students were set a task to create either a song, rap, poem or speech on the life of Martin Luther King and the impact his work has had on the world. Our students worked exceptionally hard on this piece of work using their higher order thinking skills to really analyse whether a difference has been made and whether King's work was enough to help stop prejudice and discrimination today.

This song, composed by Phoebe Roberts, written by Ramandeep Boparai, and performed by Phoebe Roberts and Lamaara Hughes-Watson, was so well written that we have had it professionally produced by Mr Hill in our recording studio, and turned into a music video by Mr Stevens.

 

With Black History month fast approaching, we couldn't think of a better way to express our appreciation as a body of staff and students for the work that has been carried out in the past towards equality. The girls were truly inspired by Martin Luther King and his vision of "judging people on the content of their character, not the colour of their skin". As you will hear from the lyrics, the girls are fully aware that inequality still hasn't been conquered in all areas of the world but they believe we still have a duty to drive Martin Luther Kings message forward and "use love to drive out hate".

We as a school feel immensely proud of the girls and their music. We really want to spread this message worldwide, so please like, comment and share!
